TRUTH IN BEAUTY – ABOUT CERTIFIED ORGANIC SKIN CARE
“Natural” and “Organic” are a term used widely in the cosmetic and toiletry industry, and without regulation, used by some companies to make their product appear ‘green’ when in fact they have many chemical ingredients. If you’re searching for an authentic organic skin care product, at the very least ensure that it’s certified. That way you know the product has been verified by a certifying authority. And then there are differences between some of the certifying bodies – just to make it even more confusing for consumers. TIP: Take care out there. Look for products that are certified organic by a certifying authority you trust.
What’s the difference between natural and organic skin care
Ingredients can be ‘natural’ but still produced with chemical fertilisers and pesticides. Organic means that it hasn’t. Organic is more than a marketing term – it’s a dedicated, conscious way of life that enhances people’s lives and the environment – and it’s regulated. Organic ingredients are grown and processed without artificial fertilisers or pesticides, synthetic chemicals or GMOs. GOOD NEWS: All Planet Eve Organics’ products are Australian Certified Organic.
Why does certification make a difference
TCertification of the product, not just some ingredients, is really the only way to ensure the product is organic and that the ingredients and processing have been verified as compliant with the particular standard. Highlighting some certified organic ingredients doesn’t mean the product itself is certified organic, and may in fact contain other synthetic chemical ingredients. To attain certified organic status, a product must comply with the strict standards imposed by the certifying body which includes the ingredients and the way they are processed; certification also requires a minimum threshold of certified ingredients. TIP: Some certifying standards are stricter than others. It’s a jungle out there…
